Hi, I have a slight problem with sei, the fuel leaks from the fuel cap. I have rang fiat and they said that its had the fuel tank recall. I have purchased two fuel caps from fiat themselves and still it leaks!

Any ideas what else it could be?

Cheers :D

does it leak from the cap, or the filler neck? It sounds like a problem with too much pressure in the tank. iirc there is a valve to vent excess pressure. can't be any more specific though i'm affraid.
the recall covered the tank itself, a dodgy seam on it - it wouldnt leak from the cap because of it.

It leaks form the filler neck! spreading down the side of the car. Would it be the green valve bit inside?

Cheers :D
